EUROPEAN APPEAL – NOW IS THE TIME
The "European Appeal - Companies and Employees – Blazing a New European Trail" calls for much needed reforms regarding employees and companies. It addresses the issues of democracy at work, enforcement of employee rights (including through a European agency dedicated to this effect), the fight against the destructive practices of shell companies, the need for a fairer and more efficient corporate tax system, and the necessity to implement binding measures regarding the social and environmental responsibility of companies.
The European Appeal was launched in mid-April. It exists in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish versions. It is a great success already: is has the support of more than 450 personalities from 30 countries, including more than 60 Members of the European Parliament, 15 Members of Parliament from various countries, five former Prime Ministers and Ministers, 40 trade-unions and 250 academics.
On 11 May, the French newspaper Le
Monde and the Spanish online newspaper
